Default Pitot tube routing

Hi all
I would love to see some images of your pitot tube routing over the engine. According to the assembly instructions to me it seems that the tube is routed pretty close to the cylinders fins (no shroud in place) and I am concerned about the heat the tube has to deal with.
Since the tube is quite long, there are possibly more routing options available.
Appreciate any info I can get about.
Thank you!!

Chris ... I checked my Blog, unfortunately the photo that shows the pitot tubing is a close up of the coupling aft of the pitot mounting block and does not show routing over the engine. My instillation has the shroud and pretty sure there are areas where the pitot tube does touch the shroud.

I plan on going to the hangar today so will snap a couple of photos for you ... PM me your email address and I will send them to you.

Happy building,
